I have a $150 upgrade towards a new phone. I want to buy the iphone 6 outright online. Will it be shipped unlocked and not activated. I want to give it to a family member as a gift. He may chose to go with a different provider for cell service.Would that be a problem. Koodo has not answered my email yet.

Hi Magie,

If it is a brand new (not "refreshed"), the iPhone6 is unlocked and not activated. You could use with any carriers compatible with it.

However, the phone will be activated and associated with your account Magie.

You meant activated with Koodo system?
I think she meant activation with iCloud apple, when the Apple warranty starts.

If your question is about whether the phone will be activated on our network the answer is yes it will be.

my question is can the phone I buy online and paid in full for be sent to me not activated. Thats all.

When it's "activated" by Koodo it just means a SIM card is activated. Nothing really is activated on the phone.
If you are wanting to use the phone with another carrier then you are free to do so.

Thats the answer I want to hear. As I am giving it away to a family member can he register it in his name when activated?

Yes, they will create a new account with Koodo with all of their details and then put the SIM card that they get into the phone you give them.
